Jim was tremendously informative through the process. I needed a lot of guidance and he always took the time to explain everything thoroughly. He was quick to run numbers when I needed them, and he worked to creatively find a package that worked for my current financial goals. When I finally made my decision, he ensured the execution phase was seamless. Jim is obviously very knowledgeable and dependable, and I will certainly call him first if/when I need to re-finance or purchase another home.

Jim did an amazing job getting us to closing in an unbelievably short timeframe. He worked tirelessly to help us out with a complicated loan and we wouldn’t be in our new home if it wasn’t for his quick thinking and dedication. As real estate agents, my husband and I have worked with Jim before and he always did a great job for our clients. He didn’t disappoint when working with him on the purchase of our own home either. We would and do highly recommend Jim as lender. He works hard and get things done!

Jim was extremely helpful. He made sure the loan side of the home purchase was processed quickly. He went above and beyond helping me though the purchase process of my new home. Thanks to Jim, the loan approval process seemed easy and painless. All the way to closing, he offered assistance and insight as to what to expect. I highly recommend Jim to anyone looking to purchase a home.
